a federal lawsuit yesterday trying to force the pentagon to he said a ban on women serving in combat jobs. the suit says service women have often found themselves in combat without receiving the same rewards or opportunities for promotion. >>> a federal judge is ordering bringing tobacco countries to run ads saying they deliberately deceived the public about the health effects of smoking. appeals are expected. >>> and the kate middleton opened a new gallery while debuting a new face framing hair do. layers there. maybe a little lighter, too. her royal highness got up close and personal with rare first editions of on the origin of species and birds of america. >>> and now here is your first look at this morning's dish of scrambled politics. the "chicago sun-times" reports former illinois congressman jesse jackson jr. may have been tipped off about the federal probe into his use of campaign funds. sources suggest jackson was alerted before taking that leave of absence back in june. they also say the tip may not the have come from investigators. >>> we can't show you much, but here is what i
combat is outdated, unfair, and actually bad for their careers. cnn pentagon correspondent barbara starr is joining us. tell us who these women are and what exactly they want changed. >> well, suzanne, these particular women are veterans of the wars in iraq and afghanistan and like many military women, they are getting very frustrated about the rules here because basically many jobs have been opened to women but women are still legally prohibited by the military from serving in front line combat positions. these women say it's keeping them from advancing in their careers and that the reality of war, of course, is that women are in combat these days. one of them even helicopter pilot, she was shot down, wounded, and got a purple heart. listen to what one of these women had to say about their concerns. >> the policy limits my future in the marine corps. i would be assigned to positions based on my gender rather than my qualifications or accomplishments. this doesn't make sense to me personally or professionally and frankly doesn't make sense to the military. >> what they are saying is, loo
's folks over $250,000 or some number close to. that the pentagon's got to make a contribution and if there is anything on healthcare, it's gotta be about reforming it, bringing the costs down, not cutting benefits. >> eliot: let's drill down a couple of pieces of this. what do you think the underlying ratio should be between cost cutting and revenue generation. last summer it was 10 to 1 in terms of cutting costs to revenue. thankfully the deal didn't get done. should it be one-to-one? where would you like to see this happen? >> you know, i actually don't know that number because i think the question is i think we need about a trillion and a half from revenues and the revenues have to come, as i mentioned, the way president obama was campaigning. and then the pentagon's gotta make a contribution and we've already cut a trillion and a half dollars on domestic discretionary. we'll have to cut more to get a deal. but with the ratio is, i haven't been that close to what the numbers are. >> eliot: one of the issues lu
is to keep the bush tax cuts, cut entitlements, and postpone cuts to the pentagon. in other words, they haven't budged at all. how is that compromise? how is that reasonable? but it gets worse. speaker boehner now says the health care law should go under the knife. boehner says, quote, we can't afford it. we can't afford to leave it in tact. that's why i've been clear that the law has to stay on the table as both parties discuss ways to solve our nation's massive debt challenge. folks, this debate is over. the american people have spoken. mitt romney ran on two big ideas in this campaign. cut the taxes and reveal our obama care. he lost. those ideas lost. but they didn't learn a thing. joining me now is congressman keith ellison, democrat for minnesota. he's co-chair of the progressive caucus. and former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, now an nchl bc news political analyst. thank you both for joining me tonight. >> glad to be here, al. >> good to be here. >> congressman, let me start with you. what is your are reaction to speaker boehner's claim that the health care law should be on the tab
, postpone pentagon cuts, and now they are putting health care on the table. mr. cantor says the gop has presented a big move. nah. losing an election is big. i'm still waiting for the move part from them. joining me now is jared bernstein, msnbc contributor and former chief economist for vice president joe biden and michelle cottle, washington correspondent for newsweek and the daily beast. thank you both for coming on the show. >> thanks, rev. >> michelle, let me go to you first. let's leave the other tax reform issues for aside for the moment. how can they defend not raising rates? >> this is fundamental to the house republicans got elected and who they are. taxation is stealing under any circumstances you don't raise the tax rates. and this whole grover norquist pledge, i agree, is a complete distraction. no matter how you feel about taxes, you don't want to look like you're tied to and being given marching orders by somebody who people have never heard of. i don't think the norquist pledge really matters. the house, in particular, has a problem with any kind of tax rate hike. >> now
, it gets declassified right away. >> if michael moore had gone to the pentagon and said i wanted to do a movie about the bin laden raid, they would probably not have set up meetings with top people in the c.i.a. and joint special operations commander, those involved in the command, right? you have this very selective leaking process that goes on. it's widespread throughout the government now where you have this really powerful executive branch that will only leak things or declassify things when it makes them look good and use classification as a weapon to attack critics and to try to keep things that might be embarrassing, so there's no consistency at all. i think that that's the real problem here. >> cenk: i think that's 100% right. on the other hand, the republicans of course as usual go over board with their criticism. i want to show you something about that from nightline. >> as far as the controversy goes, you know how can i put this. it was an election year. it was surreal and bizarre to have i mean, there were major players in the republican party characterizing the script and
. >>> some fascinating new information from the pentagon contains details we never knew before about the killing of osama bin laden. cnn's brian todd has been reading newly released e-mails that fill in some of the gaps in the story of what happened. >> reporter: tense and very secretive transmissions as the aircraft carrier waits for the body of osama bin laden. it's may 2, 2011, the al qaeda leader has just been killed. two u.s. navy admirals use code words to describe bin laden. the commander says fed ex delivered the package, both trucks are safely on route home base. the e-mails heavily redakted have just been released by the defense department responding to a freedom of information act washdog. a few days earlier that strike dog asked do i need any special religious ceremonial preparations. after bin laden's buried at sea, an admiral describes the scene. tradition traditional procedures for islamic burial was followed. the deceased body was washed then placed in a white sheet then a military officer read prepared religious remarks which were translated into arabic. tipped up wh
the pentagon hoping to force the military to drop its policy that excludes them from thousands of ground combat positions. all four women are veterans of the war in iraq and afghanistan. they main the combat exclusion role is discriminatory. >> the policy limits my future in the marine corps. i would be assigned to positions based on my gender rather than on my qualifications or my accomplishments. this didn't make sense personally or politically and it did not make sense for the military. >> she also says this prevents commanders from deciding the best way to fight. >>> so what would you do with $500 million? that's tonight's record-shattering powerball jackpot expected to climb higher. millions of americans in 42 states are trying to parlay $2 into half a billion. alison kosik is live from times square this morning. what's happening there? 60% of ticket sales are expected to be made today. we know the odds are pretty slim, but people are still going for it. >> reporter: they are still going for it. you know, you talk about the odds, the odds are slim. 175 million to 1 are the odds that you'll
. a pentagon spokesman said they are committed to expanding roles for women in the military. look, if you have copd like me, you know it can be hard to breathe, and how that feels. copd includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema. spiriva helps control my copd symptoms by keeping my airways open for 24 hours. plus, it reduces copd flare-ups. spiriva is the only once-daily inhaled copd maintenance treatment that does both. spiriva handihaler tiotropium bromide inhalation powder does not replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms. tell your doctor if you have kidney problems, glaucoma, trouble urinating, or an enlarged prostate. these may worsen with spiriva. discuss all medicines you take, even eye drops. stop taking spiriva and seek immediate medical help if your breathing suddenly worsens, your throat or tongue swells, you get hives, vision changes or eye pain, or problems passing urine. other side effects include dry mouth and constipation. nothing can reverse copd. spiriva helps me breathe better.

answer to the pentagon. a city threw a bomb on to the bus or left one it is not a suicide bomber, but 10 people were injured. three of them very seriously wounded here in this attack. the two suspects on the list would be hamas or islamic jihad, both operating out of the gaza strip. hamas is peace talks and trying to figure out if a cease fire over israel with the rockets and the bombings on the other side going into the gaza strip . islamic jihad has a different agend a. they are backers in iran who are pushing for rocket fire against the gaz strip. we should have a shot up of this on our live view, you can actually see this bus that stopped. this harkens back to the days of the second intfada where you had bombing on the buses mainly suicide bombings. this doesn't appear to be that. but it is a mange failure for the israeli intelligence services in a critical time, whether it is going to derail the peace talks or not is yet to be scene. obviously the fact that secretary clinton is in town and able to be the a voice of calm could mean that everyone goes to cairo and gets involved in the

. last week the pentagon started to investigate allen's connection to a central figure in the david petraeus scandal. there's a lot of little connections that have brought this whole affair together. eventually led to the cia director resigning. chip reid is here with more information. >> they finally put somebody out there who we thought would give us some information. this is the first time since the scandal broke that we heard from anyone that would appear to have inside information. it turned out to abby czar press conference featuring a famous celebrity lawyer that only served to raise more questions than it answered. it's been almost two weeks since the story broke and the first person to speak out wasn't general petraeus. it wasn't his alleged mistress broad. nor jill kelley the woman who accidentally uncovered the affair when she allegedly passed threatening emails from broadwell to the fbi. it was natalie khawam. >> we're here today to help the public understand who natalie khawam really is. >> she was joined by none other than gloria allred a celebrity at
morsi. jennifer given is live at pentagon. what was the reaction to the bombing. >> reporter: there was strong reaction and condemnation from the white house, the spokesman at the white house jay carney as well as from the state department and the secretary of state hillary clinton who arrived about two hours ago in egypt where she has been meeting with the egyptian president, morsi. certainly her job more difficult in the wake of this suicide bombing down in downtown tel-aviv. it's the first bombing essentially in the last six years, since the end of the palestinian uprisings, the intifada. it's going to make her job a lot more difficult. aides have said she planned to be home for thanksgiving. it's not clear whether she'll ned to go back to israel, back to the israelis and palestinians after meeting with president morsi in egypt. here is the statement she issued in the wake of the tel-aviv bombing, quote the united states strongly condems this attack and our prayers and thoughts are with the victims of israel. eupl closeli am closely monitoring reports from tell louisiana s
-- there is no channels for this. we have been praised by everywhere from the white house to the pentagon, but in terms of getting the units, it is word of mouth. it is viewers. we have had viewers of your show, shannon, which i am grateful for, tell us about that and get us connected with units. over the holidays, we can get the stuff out quickly, it's a great time, just in time for christmas. >> thank you for getting us updated. we will make sure the information's out there. whether you are helping those who have fallen on hard times or you want to spread good cheer, we want to see what you are up to. a lot of folks are doing selfless things. we want you to show us how you are celebrating and helping others. log on to our show page. you can upload pictures and stories of how you are helping out as well. still to come on america's news headquarters... >> you could be headed into an actual military takeover, if things went in the wrong direction. you could see a scenario, where there is continued chaos. >> concerns at home that the power grab by egypt a president could lead to complete chaos. we will a
.i.a. amid scandal. there could also be big changes at the pentagon. as well at state department. whoever the president chooses, it could impact, for example, the use of armed drones taking out al qaeda overseas. and lots of other security matters. and now, a fox news contributeor and pollster joining us, and former senior advisor to senator john mccain. the use of the unmanned drones to take out terrorists who want to murder americans, on its face it should be a no-brainer but national security appears to be politicized. >> that is right. to their credit the obama administration in the days up to the election were trying to codify the rules and regulations for making those difficult decisions. however, we are alonging at the possibility of massive defense cuts. we have new personnel, as you suggested, coming in potentially to state, defense, and c.i.a., and we have our whole national security apparatus being overhauled at a time when we are in great peril as reporting from the middle east, particularly gaza strip and israel suggests. >>gregg: president obama, it can be said, has a checke
to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. barbara, what are you learning? >> well, wolf, north korea says it is pursuing trying to launch a satellite into space. but intelligence services around the world doubt that that is true. this satellite image of a north korean missile launch pad was just snapped in the last 24 hours. u.s. government officials and private experts say it shows the same types of preparations including trucks and fuel tanks not seen since april when a long-range missile failed seconds after launch. north korea claimed then it was just trying to launch a satellite. the new digital globe image and this one taken just days before don't yet show a missile. but with these kinds of preps, a launch could happen in about three weeks if a missile is put on the launch pad according to analysis by digital globe. north korea watchers say the new leader, kim jong-un may be responding to internal political pressure from hardliners. >> on the other hand, he may also want it himself. he may decide it's the right kind of provocation just before the south korean president election
in the white house situation room or at the state department or the pentagon said it's not worth it. we can't go in and help them. and to understand how long the attack continued, that's really troublesome. the fact that the united states cannot respond within an hour's time to an attack like that on its own state department? that's just inkrcredible information to give to the world and if i were a member of the diplomatic core, i would be troubled. >> i'm sure they are. when they talked to general petraeus, they talked about the intelligence. it goes back to the intelligence for me. i have asked others before how this does not compare, the susan rice issue, to the condoleezza rice issue on weapons of mass destruction. she was also wrong when she was the national security adviser, right? she had information and she talked, remember, to wolf blitzer about let's not have the smoking gun become a mushroom cloud. fast forward three years in 2005 when she was up to be secretary of state, it was lindsey graham who was furious that the democrats were pushing back. it was senator john mccain who we
at the pentagon city mall at arlington, virginia. she joins us now. stacey, some 200 stores in this mall, four levels? what have you been seeing? >> it's enormous. if you want to shop this is the place to do it. some of the anchor stores, larger retailers opened at midnight. the store in general opened at 5:00 this morning. i just got some numbers on the parking lot which usually can tell you some idea of how many people are here. it's about 15% full. that is as of 5:00 a.m. keep in mind, that's 5:00 a.m. and we also have a metro station within walking distance of the mall. so many people come here that way. people are steady filing in. and, i just got this, which is i've not seen black fridays before, this is a shopper bag that they are providing, a shopper relief bag to shoppers out here. they've got some really neat items, bottled water. they have hand sanitizer. there are smacks in here, candy and ships and a lot of coupons for the stores. so that's on top of the black friday deals they're already offering. these are available as supplies last. made me feel good because i haven't been able
. there are two things he said and i respect him very much. he said number one the pentagon. the fraud, the excess, the waste. that has got to come down. he said what else? what else are we going to cut? he said the healthcare. we have to improve healthcare and the whole issue is if you get the universal healthcare, then you've avoided this medicaid medicare, you know, whatever and it is more efficient because you're not sending money -- spending money for profit. you're doing it for the v.a. and for everybody. >> bill: i forget, doris igor, jump in here, too i forget the exact number but the congressional budget office proved that -- you're right. single payer would be even more efficient but we're not going to go there because we didn't. but obama care would save hundreds of millions -- hundreds of billions of dollars in delivery of healthcare costs by making it more efficient and bringing more people into the system and therefore have more capacity to deliver. >> you lower the rate of growth which is the key to lowerin
